About Carol Gibson

Southern Lancaster County has been my home for my entire life. I live 10 minutes away from Creekside Cottage and have been in the Real Estate business for many years. It has been my vision to create a place for guests to stay while visiting beautiful Southern Lancaster County. Creekside Cottage's manager, Carol Gibson, a retired teacher, was also born and raised in Southern Lancaster County.

Why Carol Gibson chose Pennsylvania

This property is adjacent to my country cabin and stables. The rich history and natural attractions in this area inspired me to build Creekside Cottage. Come learn, relax and explore this beautiful area!

What makes this cottage unique

I designed Creekside Cottage with comfort and efficiency in mind. The wood used for the kitchen island, kitchen table, walls in the den and Master bathroom all came from the trees on my property. If you stroll down behind the cottage, you will discover the most amazing natural rock wall. May you find peace, comfort and serenity during your visit!

Incredible stay again

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again to Don and Carol for their hospitality. This was our second stay in 6 months and we loved every minute. The house is immaculate and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We wished for snow during our stay, but this winter is mild for the Northeast. We have found our little piece of "heaven on earth" as we love nature, and just take in all the surroundings. We will be back again in early summer as I will celebrate my 65th birthday. We have found the perfect place to get away from the hustle/bustle of daily life. Thanks again for your hospitality and use of your home. See you soon.

Owner's Response: Dear Jack and Rhonda, If you were here right now, you'd be getting snowed in! HA! Quite the storm! We are looking forward to your third stay here and to helping you celebrate your 65th birthday! Thanks for your kind words! See you this summer! Carol & Don

Perfect rustic rural getaway close to Philadelphia and Baltimore

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Creekside Cottage! The place is gorgeous and clean, sitting in a quiet valley with nature all around. The house itself is great for entertaining and having a fun time: it has a big open den and kitchen, enclosed sunroom, long deck space, and a fire pit. My friends and I brought up our instruments and recorded an album (check us out on Bandcamp at https://wefightbears1.bandcamp.com/) and the quiet, isolated setting was very beautiful and inspiring. Creekside Cottage is a great choice for getting a group of friends or family together and enjoying PA's lovely countryside.

Owner's Response: Dear Christian, Thank you for taking the time to write your kind review. Creekside Cottage must have been the perfect place for your band to practice and record due to the layout of the first floor! I was just mentioning you and the guys to my friend last night. We both agreed that had we known you were playing your great music over there, we would have loved to stop by to listen. :-) Thank you for sending me your photo to post on our Facebook page! Please come back to revel in the beauty of nature at our secluded get-away again sometime! Happy New Year! Carol & Don

Beautiful home, Beautiful views, Great getaway with friendly helpful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed having some quiet relaxing time AND a family reunion Thanksgiving and birthday celebration . Family and friends from 19 to 90 truly raved about the design of this beautiful and beautifully thought out home on such a picturesque piece of property. How nice it was to be able to focus on food and fellowship and know that the cupboards were stocked with everything else we could need or want in dish and cookware, games, music , books and more. The house felt warm and cozy with just a few of us, and when the "whole gang" was there we did not feel crowded at all, being able to use porches, fire pit, living area with fireplace, and the nice big kitchen/dining area. We had puzzles, games, gingerbread house competitions, marshmallow roasts, quiet conversation, people walking to visit the horses, and even a few people doing college work on their computers - almost all happening simultaneously ! We thank GOD that we could have this time away at this beautiful place and we thank Carol and Don for providing the opportunity ! Steve & Heidi (and everyone else too)

Owner's Response: Dear Steve & Heidi, It sounds as though you all had a marvelous stay at the cottage! Knowing you are a touring musical family, not far from us, we hope you will come back at some point to perform for a group of our friends! That would be awesome! Thank you for leaving the adorable gingerbread house for future guests to enjoy! What fun you must have had with your family competition! We are pleased to hear you all were able to enjoy the indoor and outdoor offerings. Thank you so much and have a most exciting 2017! Fondly, Carol & Don

Without doubt one of the best places we have ever stayed in... a joy from beginning to end.

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and my parents stayed at this wonderful house for six nights in November. We had travelled from Ireland and spent some time in Boston and were looking forward to some peace and quiet in Pennsylvania!!

We certainly found it here in this little piece of Heaven on Earth!

The house is perfectly suited for two or three couples and my parents were able to have a downstairs bathroom and bedroom which was accessible for both of them and then there was the privacy of the two bedrooms upstairs and bathroom also.

We all immediately felt at home as soon as we entered the house and honestly there was absolutely everything there that one could need no matter how long you intend to stay.

The booking process from beginning to end was very simple with Carol who was always available if I had any questions .... Don also called around and met my family and we were delighted to meet him as he is such a lovely man.

Honestly there's not enough I can say about this rental other than do yourself a favour and stay here!!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Patricia, Getting a review such as this from an owner of a B&B is highly acknowledged and noteworthy. You thoroughly understand what goes into the workings of this business! We were pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay. The Master bedroom and bath on the first floor are very accommodating for folks who do not wish to climb the stairs. With the addition of the door to the Master bedroom, there is now more privacy, as well. I looked up your 2 Mile Lodge B&B and OH MY GOLLY!!!! It is GORGEOUS!!!! What fantastic reviews! Thank you again for staying at Creekside Cottage! We would love to see you again! Warmly, Carol & Don PS. Glad you got to meet Don. Yes, he is a lovely man!

Absolute perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

As the Maid of Honor in my future sister-in-law's wedding, I wanted to make her bridal shower/bachelorette party weekend perfect. And thanks to Creekside Cottage, Carol, and Don, it was MORE than perfect!! The house is everything we could have asked for and more. Secluded in the woods, overlooking a babbling brook, amazing fall weather... everything was fantastic! We are so happy to have found Creekside Cottage, we felt so welcome and Carol & Don were both so hospitable. The house has everything you need.... and more! Adorably decorated for the season, snacks/coffee/fridge stocked to abundance, brand new appliances perfect for entertaining, an amazing layout with more than enough room for everyone, perfectly clean, an amazing wrap-around deck, gas fireplace... the list goes on and on and on. I can't put into words how much we love this place, it now holds a special place in our hearts, and we will absolutely find a reason to come back to Creekside Cottage.

Owner's Response: Oh Mary, what a wonderfully well-planned event! If I recall correctly, you and your friends have a few more weddings coming up! Come back to celebrate! :-) Thank you for noticing the little touches we provide. It gives us great pleasure to hear how much the cottage was thoroughly enjoyed. The layout does provide the perfect place for entertaining and the surrounding area has so much to offer. I will always remember the girls walking up the road to Don's cabin, apples in hand and giggling, followed by happy horses who received much attention! Please come back! Our best to you all, Carol & Don

Beautiful and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We were so looking forward to coming back to Creekside Cottage!! The cottage was as lovely as we remembered, clean, welcoming with seasonal decorations, fresh fruit, and flowers. We were happy and surprised to see the door on the master bedroom!!! It saved our lifelong friends from hearing my husband snore for two nights. We had a wonderful reunion in this extremely enchanting place. We are sorry we missed Don when he stopped by. We so forward for the basement being finished. Our kids are can't wait to sleeping and hang out down there, next time we come. Thanks again for everything! It is really the best place!!

Owner's Response: Dear Linda, How about that new door! We are sure many return guests will appreciate it as much as you and your hubby did, ha! So...about the basement...thanks for your patience. I know that project is on Don's agenda. He sadly lost his mama recently and is busy settling all that is involved. Let's see what happens in the months ahead! Thanks for writing a review! Much appreciated! Warmly, Carol & Don
